VOLUNTEER - MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH PEOPLE YOU LOVE

Volunteers – The Heart of Jacob’s Heart

“Volunteering gave me a chance to be with the wonderful people who make up Jacob’s Heart.  Maddy is an important part of my life. I can’t say I’m doing it for her, but because of her!”

Jacob’s Heart’s volunteers are incredibly generous with their time and resources. Although even an hour a week is enough to do something truly valuable, many, like Grandma Shirley volunteer for 10 or more years.

We rely on our volunteers to help with day-to-day operations, creatively support our families, raise funds, coordinate projects, and assist with all aspects of organizing our events.

If you would like to volunteer, please call us at 831-724-9100 or email us at admin@jacobsheart.org.

Volunteer forms are available here or in our office.

Volunteer times are as follows:

Orientation: Every Wednesday at 3:30pm
